At the May 9 meeting, participants discussed how higher education leadership can address:

  • Preparing students to be effective citizens and professionals in a globalized world;
  • Challenges and opportunities presented by new technologies in delivering education; and
  • Concern over needs and methods of assessing institutional performance and student learning.

ACE President Molly Corbett Broad and staff from ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (CIGE) helped facilitate the discussion, which was attended by education representatives from Australia, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and South Africa.

The first Roundtable meeting was held in February.
